CURRY COUNTY DETENTION CENTER ADDS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF UPDATES

CLOVIS (KSMX)- The Curry County Detention Center is currently adding millions of dollars’ worth of upgrades.

Over the last few years, the Curry County Detention Center has slowly been making upgrades and $11.5 million in construction. Right now, the men and women inmates are housed in the same general area, which makes it hard to transport inmates for their recreational time in the sunlight.

After construction is complete, women will have their facility, which will include an eye in the sky feature to not only have cameras. They were also able to update the visitation area to have a video calling feature.

Besides the construction, the agency has made changes from the way they train their officers to their security tactics. The detention center has also hired eight new officers and is ready to hire more.

The hope increased security will make the public feel safer. These $11.5 million upgrades are set to be completed in January of 2020.
Their medical facility will more than double in size compared to the current one and have proper air circulation in two rooms to keep airborne illnesses from spreading.
